About this title


A star player for the 1950s Boston Celtics discusses the team's mystique, changes it has undergone over the years, playing for coach Red Auerbach, and the men who have played for this championship basketball team

From Library Journal:

Two retired NBA stars reminisce about their respective teams. Frazier was last heard from in Rockin' Steady ( LJ 5/15/74), a look at the life and playing style of the New York Knick guard. This time Frazier recalls the 1969-70 championship season when Dave DeBusschere, Bill Bradley, and Willis Reed electrified the game of pro basketball for New York fans. This detailed account will be of interest primarily to those Knick fans who remember that "magic season." Cousy takes a broader view of the Boston Celtics as he attempts to explain the team's phenomenal popularity and success. Rather than focusing on a particular season, he concentrates on key individuals, like coach Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, and Larry Bird, as well as the style of play that brought the Celtics 16 championships. The trends and problems of the "modern" game are also addressed, adding a dimension missing in Frazier's book. For regional collections. Jo DeLapo, Queens Lib., New York
